But I can see he has a very bad point regarding pseudo-kufic and the Seljuk rugs in writing that Romanos II was Armenian.
Oh, right, I see now that he belongs to the Macedonian dynasty!
But that is the problem with this book: better to check its references thoughtfully on the Internet before taking them into consideration.

Perhaps it could be a worthy topic for a tread or a salon? What a monumental task! No, thanks, I don’t volunteer!
I didn’t pay my copy that cheaply – I don’t remember how much exactly, but anyway it was so inexpensive, compared to the normal outrageous prices normally asked for rug books, that before buying it I asked the bookseller if that was indeed the price or it was a mistake… The price is surely the book’s winning point.
